There's a Limit on How Many You Can Keep. Not Catch.

If you're looking for a quite day on the water you've come to the wrong place. Our goal is to have you standing more than sitting. We strive for that entertaining "double hookup chaos" as much as possible. Of course, on the Nushagak it's all about triples and quads. In fact during the 2007 season all 5 of our boats were drifting one of our favorite runs, as we got the lines out almost immediately it was one, two, three and soon all four fishermen were battling kings. This is not all that rare on the Nushagak, but when I looked up the other 4 boats were all fighting quadruples as well. Fifteen or more fish on at that same time... what could be more exciting.

Our boats are always hustling and bustling with excitement. And because of our quick action and fast pace, you'll get more time with the rod in the water and a fish on the other end.
